Volume problems on Film4


Standard Member

Has anyone else experienced volume fluctuations while watching Film4? I noticed it particularly yesterday while watching the Fantastic 4. I watch Freeview through a Topfield 5810 and a 5800 - both demonstrated the same problem.

Yep, Sky SD, Freeview box and built in TV Freeview all had this problem on I am Robot and then Fantastic Four this week. Also watched one last week with the same problem. Definitely Film4 problem as Sky/Freeview box through my amp and TV Freeview through TV set speakers. It's a pain in the backside!:mad:
